FOTD Bourjois Glam & Review

Ah so my first post after Christmas! I do hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Christmas!

So i have decided to do my first proper face of the day, I was given the opportunity to trial some Bourjois products when i went to the HPM Social event in London back in November, they gave me the opportunity to choose the colours myself.

I went for colours i knew i could either tone down for a sophisictaed day look OR glam it up and rock it our for a gorgeous night look.

So for the base of my look i used Bourjoir newest foundation to hit the market - Healthy Mix Serum. I'm not going to lie after they said it was a really light coverage i did go into panic mode - ah it wont cover my blemishes, my veins from smoking and my horrendous uneven skin tone!


The coverage for me was actually surprising, it feels light but does actually smooth everything out!
I would even go as far to say this is one of the BEST high street foundations i have tried in 2011!

The application was smooth and works well with either a foundation brush or your fingers (i don't use a sponge too much bacteria). And i was left with  pretty flawless finish, it evened out the red tones and blotches i have began getting in the past few month too!

It really does do what it says on the tin " Its instant melting effect and semi-Matt finish blend in with the skin colouring, evens skin tone naturally, without thick layers or visible lines, all day long".

Shade 53 is PERFECT for me for my winter skin tone, i expect as i get more sun i may have to opt for a darker shade.
The foundation can be found at more store inc Boots and superdrug and retails for £10.99

I will be buying this foundation again!

On my eyes i used
Bourjois New Intense eyeshadow
in 01 Golden Beige, 03 Fresh Pink and 07 a light Brown.

I found the application of these shadows a little tricky at first as they are very flaky and not as pigmented as other colours in the collection.

After a few trial and errors i have decided the best application for maximum impact is to pat the colour on with the brush rather than brush it on.
This approach minimalises dust off and maximises the colour on the lid.

The colour retail at £6.99 but they contain A LOT of shadow so i can imagin it would last me a pretty long time.

I would be tempted to go try other colours in this collection which have caught my eye especially the petrol blue 06.

And the final piece to my look is
Bourjois new Volume Glamour Max Mascara.

Can i just say i have up untill now been loyal to Loreal Million Lashes, but this mascara blew me away! Its launch took place in November 2011 and is pretty amazing for my lashes, i feel that the pictures speak for themselves.

The brush design ment that for me i had a clean and clean application, there were no lumps or clumps and left my lashes longer, fuller and just plain gorgeous!

I will when this is finnished will conninue to purchase this product, it costs £9.49 and is also available in waterproof.

Hope you have liked my first every FOTD!
